BloodBowl 2 Mac Version Released

Posted on May 18, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Blood Bowl 2, the hyper violent football fantasy game based upon Games Workshop’s Warhammer universe is now available on OSX thanks to Cyanide Studios. BloodBowl 2 combines the familiar fantasy aesthetic that players have known for decades now from the Warhammer property and combines it with the ruleset from American Football. Add in a good dose of over the top violence, a turn based rule set similar to the original board game adaptation, a new graphics engine plus commentary and it is easy to see why Blood Bowl 2 was necessary.

Owners of the Windows PC version of Blood Bowl 2 will find the Mac version available on their accounts free of charge. For new coaches who have yet to hit the field as the Orcs (or other favorite faction) the game is included in Steam’s Mid Week Madness at 60% off until May 20th. Cross-play between the two versions is also supported now that the OSX version has been released.

Focus Home Interactive originally released Blood Bowl 2 on Windows PC this past September on Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The original Blood Bowl 2 was released in 2009.

Blood Bowl 2 is getting four new races, free if you already own the game

Blood bowl is already an awesome game, if you like the world of Warhammer 40K, but it seems developer Cyanide is determined to make it even better. They will be releasing four new races for play in their Blood Bowl game (chess for warhammer) for free.

“As long as you own Blood Bowl 2 before the launch of a race DLC,” Cyanide says, “you’ll get that DLC and subsequent DLC for free, from the list of four planned DLCs.” The first of these, the Norse, “should be available at the end of February”, with the other three releasing “on a regular basis”. The four being added are the  Norse, Undead, Nurgle and Necromantic races. Those being axe wielding vikings, Zombies (duuuuhh), agents of the chaos god Nurgle, and another race whom summon undead. These are all Warhammer fantasy races, so most folks who arent heavy in to Warhammer may not recognize them.

Blood Bowl

Personally I love this game, its like chess but with out most of the complex strategy and whole lot more blood and guts. Being good at chess is no guarantee of victory on this battlefield, and honestly its much better to just play to your units abilities. If you are intersted here is IGN’s trailer of what the game plays like.
